Hard, Slow-melting, Crystal-clear: A Classic Ice Cube for Every Business Need.


Crescent ice is the perfect choice for any beverage, including soft drinks, cocktails, and high-end spirits. Crescent ice cubes are hard, clear, and slow-melting, so the flavor of customer’s drinks stay intact. Crescent ice makers come in small and large ice production rates to meet any business’s ice needs.

Crescent Ice Helps Bars and Restaurants Save Money


Crescent ice is specific to Hoshizaki ice machine brands. Also, known as the KM cube, crescent ice cubes’ shape allows for liquid to gently flow over them during a pour which prevents product from splashing out of the glass and on to the bar counter. Crescent ice also stacks neatly into any shaped glass, which displaces liquid to make drinks appear fuller and more appealing to the eye. Since crescent ice cubes melt slowly and are crystal clear, they elevate the presentation of soft drinks and top-shelf spirits alike.

Crescent ice is a popular choice for industries across the nation for their reliability and range of use. Since the cubes melt slowly, servers and employees make fewer trips to the ice machine, which increases productivity.


Clean, Clear Crescent Ice at Any Size


The Hoshizaki crescent ice maker is unique among other ice machines because ice cubes form individually. This system prevents ice cubes from sticking together in the bin, so you get a perfect scoop of ice every time. KM ice machines produce anywhere between 250-1900 lbs of ice a day to fit the needs of any bar or restaurant.

Crescent ice stays clear because Hoshizaki’s evaporator design freezes only the cleanest water for their cubes. Mineral-laden water, which creates foggy ice cubes, is disposed of, so you always get a crystal-clear cube every time.
